DISCLOSURE OF DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
UniTrak will not rent, sell or pass email addresses on to third parties for marketing purposes.
A "cookie" is a small text file that is placed on a user's computer hard drive by a website.
There are several types of cookie and the most common are often referred to as 'session' cookies. These are used to keep track of information needed by a user as they travel from page to page within a website. These cookies have a short lifetime and expire within a few minutes of the user leaving the site.
Other types of cookies can be used to track internet activity after the user has left a website. These are usually sponsored by organisations external to the website being visited and are generally known as 'third party' cookies. These usually have a long lifetime with several months being quite common. They are 'harvested' and 'refreshed' whenever the user visits a page where the same or a similar cookie is being used.
UniTrak uses short lived 'session' cookies to tell whether a website user has logged, in, where to find details that can be used to pre-fill parts of on-line forms and to personalise the user's visit to the website. They are also used to track anonymously which areas of the site are popular and which are not used, this allows us to target carefully our website resources.
UniTrak cookies do not analyse visits to other websites or any searches undertaken whilst on UniTrak’s website.
Internet browsers normally accept cookies by default; however, it is possible to set a browser to reject cookies. If this is done it is important not to exclude the useful session cookies. Choose an option that rejects all third party and long lived cookies.
